More IT means lower salaries for uneducated workers: "If you don't have enough education, information technology can have a negative impact on your salary, according to a research paper published this week. A study on the education level of workers in Hong Kong and the penetration of IT in their fields showed that IT can lead to higher salaries—but only for highly educated individuals. Contrary to previous research, scientists found that IT has actually depressed the salaries of many less-educated workers."
